As the sun sets, you don your dive gear, slip on your scuba mask and bite down on your dive regulator. A deep breath and you step off the boat – into the underwater night. Although youve seen this reef many times before, this time you slip into a whole new world and watch it come to life below the glow of your dive light
The Fun Part
Introduce yourself to the whole new cast of critters that comes out after the sun goes down. See your favorite dive sites from a whole new perspective at night.
What You Learn
- Night dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques and potential problems
- How to control your buoyancy at night
- Entries, exits and underwater navigation at night
- Nocturnal aquatic life, since many of the plants and animals you’ll see are different
The Scuba Gear You Use
You will use the basic scuba diving equipment with a dive light.
A primary dive light is required. A backup dive light is recommended. All gear can be purchased at Aquatic Safaris at a student discount.
The Learning Materials You Need
Night Diving – theres really nothing like it. With the right training and a tiny bit of planning, night dives can be as simple as diving during the day. PADIs Night Diver crewpak (manual and video upon DVD) will help you prepare for your first night dives with a PADI Instructor.

The instruction material is included in your class fee.
